How to Use This Calculator

Using our calculator is as easy as pie—healthier pie, that is! Just follow these simple steps:

  1. Enter Your Height: Pop in your height, but remember, we’re doing this in inches. Whether you’re a towering giant or more on the hobbit side of the spectrum, get that number right for accurate results.
  2. Enter Your Weight: Next up, your weight in pounds. This helps us determine your Body Mass Index (BMI), a key indicator of how your mass relates to your height.
  3. Input Your Age and Gender: These details fine-tune the calculation, especially when estimating your body fat percentage. Plus, they help us adjust the results for factors like age-related muscle mass changes.
  4. Hit ‘Calculate’: Once you’ve filled in your details, just click the calculate button. In a flash, you’ll see your BMI and an estimate of your body fat percentage.
